Election day blues.

Tony Flaig quite rightly points to the dogs dinner that has been made of the voting this year and compares us to a Banana republic.

With a growing number of voters reporting that they were unable to cast votes and stories of people queueing for over two and a half hours surely we are going to see calls for seats to be re-contested and strongly so in light of the now unlikely ability of any party to form a majority.

Compare the over crowding to the fact that I did not see another voter when I voted today and all one can ask is - will this ballot of the people even be allowed to stand? Is a re-election this year now a sure thing?

[Naughty IP: 76.105.119.122] It seems to me that with all the technology available today, we ought to have better and easier ways of voting. The fact that we still have problems at the ballot box is amazing to me.
